. the next call on who is best to reach across the aisle comes from providence, rhode island, where john is a democrat. caller: unfortunately, my party as much as they have been talking about the republicans, my party has been more and more taken over by the extremist fringe. you have to look at their resume to see what they have done in the past. mitt romney had to work with the other side. obama really sold us out in the last four years. host: some tweets we have been getting on this question include -- yesterday in new jersey, the president spoke about gov. christie. >> obviously, this is a federal, state, and local effort. the first thing i want to do is think everybody who has been involved and the entire rescue and recovery process. at the top of my list i have to say gov. christie throughout this process has been responsive, aggressive in making sure the state got out in front of this incredible storm, and i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul in making sure the people of new jersey bounce back stronger than before. i want to thank him for h
of the house john boehner. you know why, because he and mitt romney share the same passion and that's a passion to restore the american promise and bring back the american dream. he needs a partner in the oval office who will do that with him. ladies and gentlemen, john boehner. [applause] >> i've been on the road for the last six weeks helping my candidate and every place i go people ask me how are we going to do in ohio. well, by the looks of things tonight, i think we're in romney ryan country right here. i couldn't be more proud of the team we've got on the ballot here in ohio this year. mitt romney, paul ryan, josh man dell, sharon kennedy, a team ready to bring america back. [applause] a lot of you know i grew up not far from here but we moved here almost 38 years ago. raised our daughters here, moved my business here. this is our home. and i couldn't think of a prouder time for a westchester ohio than tonight. when i was running my business here, i saw how government could make it harder. i saw what government could do to stifle job creation. this is the heart land of america and in some
who does not share our values. attacking john kerry. george would not joined a gang to bring senators together. he said, we do not need to compromise. >> your rebuttal? >> john warner and i worked as a team for virginia. i am proud of john warner as a friend and ally. as far as my office budget, we turned back $1.40 million in the six years i served as senate. we showed you can reduce. as governor, i was comparing it because that is a comparison one can make. tim waited two years and cut his by only 5%. when i left the senate, the unemployment rate was only 4.4%. has been hovering around 8% for 44 months. the spine -- the spending, it does need to get under control. there needs to be disciplined. the annual budget deficit was $160 billion. now, it has been over $1 trillion. it is because of the policies and spending tim kaine has been advocating. you talk about $16,000 per second. it is now $47,000 per second spending. he criticized the tax cuts i reported? 7 million american jobs were created. i am glad we reduced taxes on families and small businesses. >> thank you. our next questio
not accurate. host: john prible, because of these hurricanes that we looked at earlier in 2004 and sandy, will those rates go up overall? guest: not as a result of this particular storm. what fema is currently doing and have been for about 10 years, they're undergoing a massive modernization project where they are going across the country using scientific and engineering models to remap. we had a caller earlier who said that the map was old and out of date. that will not be the case. so there will be changes to flood zones over the coming years if you cannot already had a change. you may have one coming in the next two years. but it will not be the result of a particular storm or particular flooding event. these policies are different than private insurance policies in that regard. for example, if you have an auto insurance policy and get into an accident and make a claim, your insurance premiums going forward may increase because of your history. the national flood insurance program does not quite work that way. in that individual storms or flooding events don't have a direct bearing on
john in north carolina, who writes under the handle affirmatively. john writes, north carolina doesn't have large failed cities of crackheads and gangbangers and thus rarely votes for the democrat nominee. gideon moore? >> i'm not sure what to make of that. we certainly have our issues. the fact is that this is a state that traditionally has republican nominees for president and i believe we will return to that in 2012. >> next up is rich in centreville, virginia, on our line for republicans government ahead, rich. >> thanks for taking my call. last night i was watching i think nbc news and they were talking about the electoral votes. this is more for you guys at c-span. when they were talking about the possibility the electoral votes could end up high in the house, romney is the president and senate would elect biden as the vice president, if we go forward next week, is that -- i know the electoral votes may wind up determining the election. could you guys put something together to explain that? i mean, i never thought that was a possibility. and i get so twisted. i don't care what
for having me. host: our look cut this topic will continue with the republican strategist john turner and then later with. >> as we approach the election day, c-span is asking middle and high school students to send a message to the president. in a short video students what i ask the question was the most important issue the president is facing in 2013. the studentcam video competition is open to kids aged 6-12. the deadline is january 18, 2013. find out more at studentcam.org. >> these are the stories that your textbooks left out. they are great stories in american history. the first program came up to 50 sale. before the mayflower sel there were french. they made wine. they had the good sense of to come in june instead of the winter. they were completely wiped out by the spanish. an indian woman was captured by the spanish. in the middle of the night she killed her captor. she realized she could get a county for the scouts. she went back to boston and was a hero. they erected a statue in her honor. >> live sunday at noon eastern with kenneth davis, on both tv on c-span2. "washington
to john in new mexico. on our line for democrats. caller: good morning. it is a great honor to be on the c-span. i studied this report in geology actually last year at unm, and wrote a report on this report. they use words like unequivocally, climate change is real, they use words like absolutely the climate has been changed. 95% degree of certainty the climate has been changed. now, i drive a ford. and i like driving, like the freedom of driving. i do not want to be a hypocrite. because climate change is real. and you can ignore climate change, it will not go away. claiming it is an act of god will not change it. the top scientists have agreed that the ocean level is rising from melting ice around the world. climate change is real. host: here is the washington times editorial. regulationsomobiles will claim hundreds of lives by making vehicles less safe. the environmental protection agencies were on call shut down to water plants that produce af- caller: i do not know there is enough money to throw at the problems. it is very depressing to me. because i really think that there is going to
in zanesville. this is about 30 minutes. we begin with remarks by ohio governor john k. asek. [applause] >> how you doing out here, huh? we are more excited. paul ryan is here, the next vice president of the united states. my wife and my children are here. would you give them all round of applause? they have to put up with all of this. you know the situation. we are doing better. i hope you agree we are doing better. and we went from a loss of 400,000 jobs and we are up 112,000 now. we went from $8 billion in the hole to a balanced budget. not bad, huh? we are now the number four job creator in the united states and number 1 in the midwest. why? because of all of you. but the problem we have -- every day i think about these numbers and these headwinds that keep pushing us back. and the head winds are coming from washington. there are a lot of people here that are small business people. you are the heroes. the small business people deserve a great round of applause for what they do in employing our families. [applause] when we have a federal government that has a $16 trillion national debt, i ca
to start of christopher's from minnesota, he writes in, the electoral college needs to go away. john from maryland -- in other non-swing state writes -- my view is that the media has made too much out of the debates and hasn't focused enough of its energy on the ground with actual voters and personal stories. and finally, my goal from massachusetts writes, since my vote will not matter, have put my energy into getting democratic support for president obama when he is reelected, elizabeth warren for senate. we want to hear from those in non-swing states this morning. the phone lines are open. as we are waiting for you to call, i will point to the front page of usa today. the headline -- four days to seal the deal. after a brief campaign hiatus' courtesy of hurricane sandy, president obama and mitt romney resumed campaigning. the candidate's weekend travel schedules made it clear where the election was likely to be decided. obama was slated to return to ohio today. saturday, sunday and monday. he was set to appear in iowa, virginia, wisconsin, florida, new hampshire and colorado. romney was
with john nichols and christian scheider. they probably have opposite views of what occurred here tonight. i am just guessing. you are free to go to the polls between now and november 6. election day is the sixth. we encourage you all to get out and vote. thank you to the candidates for being here tonight, and to you for watching at home. i am mike gousha. have a wonderful evening. >> live pictures of the u.s. capitol well -- where hurricane sandy has shut down the federal government today. d.c. area schools are closed. commercial flights are grounded. most of the metropolitan east coast is shutdown because of the storm. early voting has also been canceled here as well as in maryland. president obama wants to make a campaign stop in orlando earlier today. the president's plane is back here in about half an hour or so. because of the storm, many of the campaign events were planning to cover were canceled. it will be covering an event with mitt romney this morning in the midwest as he stops in three battleground states. he starts in avon lake, ohio. then he has to davenport, iowa, before he fi
. kerrey., john care the president got a nine point victory in 2008. we really are tossups state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is there early voting and how do the hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there's not early voting, but there's absentee ballot. you have to sign a form saying you are not going to be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, the polls are open from about 7:00 until 7:00. some locations are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. other statistical interesting facts are that we are one of the least taxed states in the nation. the least. we have no income tax, no sales tax. the democratic and republican candidates will pledge on that issue, saying they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue. host: neil levesque, about the recount laws in the state of new hampshire. is it possible that there could be a recount in this state and what
appoint the honorable frank r. wolf to act as speaker pro tempore on this day. signed, john a. boehner, speaker of the house of representatives. the speaker pro tempore: the prayer will be offered by the guest chaplain, reverend steven willis, first baptist church in west virginia. the chaplain: let us pray. to the one who governs seas and quells the storms, we thank you for offering each life and granting hope in times of calamity. we come to you on the eve of this election seeking wisdom. for failing to take up the calls of the fatherless, we ask for mercy. for insufficiently defending the case of the widow, we humbly repent. teach us to fear you and keep your commandments. may we learn to do good, seek justice, and rebuke those who would oppress your children. restore our rulers as at the first, and our judges as at the beginning. that we might be called a nation of righteousness, of faithful people. may we be redeemed by justice and those repent by righteousness. let the retched poor, pitiful, naked, and blind experience the transformation of your grace so that your name, o lord, m
, of course john boccieri, who i think you know pretty well, is no longer serving us but i hope he'll be back. in line with that, the redistricting issue too in ohio. i wish yud speak a little bit to the pathology of how these districts are being gerrymandered and -- specifically in -- an issue two in ohio. >> we're supporting issue two, i'm supporting issue two which creates a citizen panel to redraw the congressional districts and the legislative districts. >> is that on the ballot as well? >> it's on the ballot as well. it takes the pen out of the hands of politicians, both democrats and republicans, so we can start getting districts that are inclusive of entire communities and other things, to make sure we don't have a district, for example, one that starts in mahoney county in northeastern ohio and goes all the way down to south central ohio and includes, you know, is basically drawn as a republican district. republicans control the pen in this particular instance and redrew districts that benefited republicans. to think that there are a million more democrats in ohio than there are repu
carter twice, walter mondale, michael dukakis, bill clinton, al gore, and john carry, and barack obama. caller: when this editorial board said down, we did not look at who has an r or d behind his name. the whole conversation focal point was the economy. what is best for the next four years. partisanship was set aside to examine the issues that i once care the most about, an issue that is at a high level on the national level. it has to be in a bipartisan way. this thread state, blue state gridlock that we find ourselves and as a nation is not just being saw in washington, it is being saw all over the country. i think there is a growing demand from voters -- i think this election will probably prove it -- they want washington to work. the one there to be leadership. there has to be an effort from somebody to reach across the aisle and make something happen with another party. when we sat down and really thought about where we wanted to go with this, we looked at the list. host: let me bring up one other point. we are focusing on the demo in registered in part because of mitt romney spe
to washington? >> you asked if i would vote for john boehner so i don't know. i would vote for a republican speaker. let me mention since we're talking about the lack of bipartisan ship. congressman's budget which is an impressive budget it wasn't supported by his own party. so we need people that can come up with bipartisan solutions reach across the table. i'm in the center. he's so far to the left there is no coming home for him. he's not your father's democrat, he's not a john f. kennedy democrat. he's got his own agenda. >> where is the center you could shake hands with a democrat over the table? >> can i? >> yeah, which issue? >> there are plenty of issues. bringing the corporate tax rate down. i think it's a great idea that he came up with and prick supported -- president clinton supported that. >> i'm proud to have the support of president clinton who said the progressive version is the best and it was the budget that most invested in putting america back into the future business because it protects social security, medicare and makes america competitive internationally. so i think
gotten some criticism from fellow republicans, including lindsey graham and john mccain about the effort you have lunch. speak a little bit about how you intend to move the party and if you think you will have the momentum going forward? >> if you ask people -- i have told people i can go to the kentucky democrat convention, stand in front of all democrats and tell them, we do not have enough money to send money to pakistan, egypt, libya, countries where mombs are burnig our flax. we have problems at home. we have -- our flags. i can get 90% of democrats to agree with me. we wanted these bridges to be repaired or replaced 20 years. we have money to send overseas. if you look and follow the trail of the money, so much of it is stolen. look at mubarak in egypt. he was a reliable ally who stole us blind. we gave him $60 billion over 30 years. his family is worth 10 billion- $15 billion. this happened throughout. people said, we need the foreign aid because it convinces people to like us. do you know what mubarak did with it, he but tear-gas made in pennsylvania and sprayed his people when t
half a million votes and governor bush. but people forget that john carey had 71,000 more votes -- if john carey had gotten 71,000 more votes in ohio, he would have won the popular vote and by 3 million puritan -- 3 million. >> simply because of ohio? >> because of ohio. i think it is a possibility that governor romney will get something like 271 and lose the part of the vote. a goes to the question of whether we should have an electoral college at all. for the obama folks it is two things. it is all about a ground game, and one. and number two, he has to deliver a strong message not so much for the undecided, as scott said, but more so for those days voters that are not going to vote for governor romney under any circumstances. diyala decision they're making is whether it is worth going to the polls. -- the only decision they are making is whether it is worth going to the polls. if the last two freshmen -- advertisement i have seen are the morgan freeman had and the one with the president speaking of himself. they are pretty good. it may influence someone to take a deep sigh an
partisan atmosphere i have ever seen. look, look at john kasich. i learned a lot from that man. i came as a young guy in congress under his leadership. following the same trail he blazed. here is a guy, who sees a problem and runs at the problem. that is what leadership is. we got big problems. we do not want a president blaming somebody else for four years. we do not want a president ducking the tough issues, demagoguing the other party. we want a president who will lead and fix this mess and solve our problems and get this country back on the right track. [applause] so it is not enough for us to complain about the broken promises or to simply highlight the fact that president obama cannot run on his record so he is trying to distort hours and distract people to win by default. this is why we are offering specific solutions, specific ideas in how to create 12 million jobs, how to get people back to work, how to confront our problems. number one, and here in ohio, here in this part of ohio, we have so much energy in this country. let's use this energy and put people back to work. let's
cheney and john edwards, who i would ask different questions of today -- [laughter] there was a light. they could see the light. they knew when they were over time. on one occasion, dick cheney said i do not know if i could answer that in 30 seconds, and i said that is all you have. people in bars across the country started clapping, and i was just thinking we need to set -- stick to the time. i was just trying to think what the rules are. >> who sets the rules? >> the commission and the candidate. >> do moderator's have any input? >> they give you something that they ask you to sign. and you don't. >> i did not even get that, actually. >> ok. rules they said? >> here is the problem with the time thing. i did not get into this to be the school monitor. if they are having a conversation that shows the something about the two of them, you do not want to artificially cut them off, or let them call on on something bad. it is a much more organic choice, what is going on in this moment right now. >> it calls a minute to use your judgment. when you feel they have exhausted the subject, and w
. compare that to 2004, were the center of the state was essentially read for george w. bush. john carey won a huge margin in philadelphia and pittsburgh, also winning in it -- north western pennsylvania. a huge vote difference. loretta is joining us from pennsylvania, republican line. terry madonna in harrisburg. good morning. caller: hello -- my comment is that i think obama should be impeached for allowing the ambassador and seal, after requesting help three times, being denied, told to stand down -- you cannot tommy the president did not know about it. he is dancing around this issue, and i think it should be made a national issue and i am very disappointed in him and hillary clinton, her being a mother and a woman. i think it is disgusting. host: if you had a chance to ask the president a question on this issue, what would you ask him? caller: why did you have the skies murdered? that would be my question. -- those guys murder? why did he not sent up there when he could? host: we'll get a response -- terry madonna on this issue generally and also on foreign policy, how that is playing o
tuesday night. thank you john for entertaining and supporting and for helping so many people come together to make contributions to the red cross. i know senator john thrasher is here somewhere. he's somewhere. and congressman crenshaw is here. thank you -- there they are down in the corner. thank you. they are good men and appreciate their help tonight. [applause] we're excited tonight because we know that we're getting closer to a big change in this country, a real change. [applause] we also have full hearts because we know our fellow americans are struggling through some real tough times with the hurricane that hit the atlantic coast and i want to underscore if you have the ability to help out, please provide some resources there and give calls to your loved ones and keep them in your thoughts and prayers. we help each other as americans and that help is needed now. so thank you florida for your help. [applause] now i think people are coming together in another way right now and that is people recognize this is an extraordinary opportunity for america that we face great challenges but t
'm a big supporter of george w. bush. he would be surprised to see that since i campaigned for john kerry. it is a couple of republican operatives in atlanta who are sending misleading fliers to democrats in maine, trying to get into vote for cynthia. it is ridiculous. only residents of the place you are running should contribute. if you're running for senate in maine, only people in maine could contribute. >> democracy have representation. that led to the birth of our country. it was not about corporations. it is not about karl rove. it was about representation. one of our most special freedoms. terrible decisions, a super pacs bad. people talk about big government being bad. my experience is the political industrial complex that is just as insidious both here in maine and nationally. i do think we need to get back to the principle that when people want to run for office they should be able to have a straight dialogue with the electorate. they should be able to say who's a lot for me. people should not come in from atlanta saying do not vote for angus king or cynthia. that should not be
they are older and have certain religious beliefs. but they cannot play a financial goal. host: john is a democrat. caller: i just wanted to say that bush, romney, and the republicans have set up this tax structure which helps these companies take our jobs overseas for cheaper labor. and the internet will also suck up a lot of jobs in the coming future. you can have a job almost anywhere, so all the tax money but being received, i believe, is going to go to corporations who are going to invest it in prisons, to house people cheaply, and to make sure they don't have to pay social security and welfare, because everybody will be in jail. host: since we are talking abou what campaigns are spending money, are you hearing a lot of ads on the radio or seeing them on tv? caller: i am. they set things to fall under this president make him look bad because it had already been in the process and they knew he could not stop it. then they would change it back into a police state once they get back in and put everybody in jail and take everybody's houses and stuff. host: let's look at the battlegr
the event. john kasich was supposed to be there but some power outages, has attended to those. presidential candidate mitt romney has a campaign even this evening, the last of his three stops in ohio. he will be in florida today, rather, campaigning with jeb bush. we'll have that for you tonight at 8:00 eastern and follow that with your phone call reaction and your twittery action on c- span. you heard about the rain in ohio, the president in new jersey with the governor of new jersey, chris christie, touring parts of that state. and here in brigantine, north of atlantic city, he spoke to firefighters and other people as well. this is about 20 minutes. >> good afternoon, everybody. i want to thank the members are here and i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon to get there surveying the damage up and down a coastline. we were able to show the president that personally. we had an opportunity to discuss it. and over to the shelter and meet with folks and have them see the president and his concern all of us have for making sure that things get back to normal as quickl
even faster? there is a jobs bill in the congress right now and speaker john boehner will not bring it up for a vote. that would add another one or two million jobs and getting them back to work with roads, infrastructure, teachers, police, and fire. these are solid numbers, but we've got more to do. we have to make sure we have a president that will be able to get the job done for us. host: four days from the election and using the numbers are solid. how do you say they will play out and other key indicators are you watching going into tuesday? guest: we are seeing a lot of improvements in ohio. one in eight jobs here is directly or indirectly related to the audio industry. we see some key changes in the supply chain for the autumn industry which has had a huge benefit. that is in the short term. the president put a tariff on chinese steel which led to a $1 billion investment in a new steel factory in youngstown, ohio, and it is all due to the president's policies. there are some good feelings about how this is going. we all know we have a long way to go. who was going to move us f
. that is what this is about. president obama and john boehner sat at the table, and they almost had a grand bargain, but the tea party and my opponent would not let boehner make a deal. now we're left with the sequestration. with the looming cuts at the end of the year that our economy cannot sustain is because of the extremism. >> sequestration was obama's idea. it had nothing to do with the house. i brought the legislation to the house floor to stave off sequestration. i am taking action. >> we are talking about spending cuts that will affect defense and social programs. it is a good point to start popping off on medicare and health care. your question goes to mr. murphy. >> we have seen different numbers on what the paul ryan plan would do in the fact to increase costs to seniors, anywhere from $6,350 to about $200 a month. what kind of number can we look at and say this is what a cut will look like under this plan because of a large area of the budget that needs to be looked at? >> that is the kaiser family foundation study. under the ryan plan, 60% of seniors will face cost increases.
like john walsh in the white house. [applause] but most of all, our supreme court -- say it with me, we're sending them to the supreme court. now when we elect mitt romney next president of the united states, we know we will have a better america. we know that we will have a better michigan. we know that our children and grandchildren will be in a place that we can all be proud of going forward and be safe and secure. so stand with me, stand with all the folks from wayne county. stand with all the folks from michigan and let's elect mitt romney the next president of the united states. [applause] thank you for being here. it's my hon tor to call upon romney to introduce our speaker. >> what do you think about the chairman? he has done such a great job making michigan competitive in this race and because of him michigan is going to put us over the top and win the white house for mitt romney. thank you very much. i am so honored to be able to introduce former first lady laura bush. let me just say a couple of things which obviously we all know what a wonderful first lady she was. i look at
for michigan. we got to make sure that we keep our state house republican like john walsh in the white house. [applause] but most of all, our supreme court -- say it with me, we're sending them to the supreme court. now when we elect mitt romney next president of the united states, we know we will have a better america. we know that we will have a better michigan. we know that our children and grandchildren will be in a place that we can all be proud of going forward and be safe and secure. so stand with me, stand with all the folks from wayne county. stand with all the folks from michigan and let's elect mitt romney the next president of the united states. [applause] thank you for being here. it's my honor to call upon romney to introduce our speaker. >> what do you think about the chairman? he has done such a great job making michigan competitive in this race and because of him michigan is going to put us over the top and win the white house for mitt romney. thank you very much. i am so honored to be able to introduce former first lady laura bush. let me just say a couple of things which o
the john mccain experience four years ago, no one would actually use that phrase. there are unpredictable ways in which this could affect people. no one wants to be seen as trying to take political of vantage of this. but the effect could include things like not being able to make appearances in swing states, early voting, or power outages lasted long enough, voting could be disrupted. the fact that nobody can really tell -- it will be difficult to get the message out. voters in crucial areas will not be paying attention to the federal election or campaign messages or the last-minute flurry of advertisements that everyone basically sits on cash for if they do not have power. both candidates are losing their opportunity to send their message to voters. there is the unknown impact on the much discussed ground game that the obama campaign was relying on to get the voters out to the polls. you also argue that mitt romney is the one who has ground to make up in a crucial swing states, like ohio and virginia. it will make it difficult for him. right now it is hard to tell whose campaign is goin
day. essentially, obama won the election before election day. john mccain won the election day vote but obama had already won the election in the early voting period. we have already had 1 million people voted north carolina. -- voters in north carolina. at this point, the democrats are doing better on the early voting, it appears. we don't have a vote count so we don't know exactly what the tally is. if you look at things -- we know things like number of active americans who have voted and that is up from the percentage who voted in 2008. percentage is greater this time at this juncture that was in 2008. the number of younger voters who tend to be more for obama than for running a, a greater percentage is up this time compared to 2008. those are all good signs for the obama campaign. but, what that will mean at the end, we don't know but the obama campaign had a good signal from that. host: we have a chart from an article in the "atlantic." it talks about absentee ballot request in north carolina. host: the democrats made a gain of about 9000. in your observations, do you see more
and senator john mccain on that sort of effort that you've launched, to speak a little bit about how you intend to move the party and if you think you're going to have the momentum going forward. >> i think if you ask people, i've told people, i think i can go to the kentucky democrat convention, stand in front of all democrats, and tell them, you know what? we don't have enough money to be sending money to pakistan and egypt and libya, countries that are more mobs or burning our flag, attacking our embassy. we've got problems at home. in my state, we have two bridges that are $2 billion projects, louisville and in northern kentucky. this is it fact. i think -- this is infrastructure. i think i can get 90% of democrats to agree with me. don't extent money overseas when we have problems at home that we can't take care of. we've wanted these bridges to be reand replaced for 20 years and yet we have money to send overseas and if you look and follow the trail of the money, you find that so much of it is it stolen. look at mubarak. mubarak in egypt was a reliable ally, who stole us blind. he
that a return rate amongst absentee among republicans for john mccain. host: on the ballot issues and bloomberg insider rights this a -- guest: the civil union issue, i think that is accurate, by the way. i have not see the civil union issue pop up in to the contras as of the average voter. on the margins, -- into the consciousness of the average voter. on the margins, it may pop up. although, it would traditionally break into the democratic party since they have been the sponsor of this type of legislation in the legislature. the predominant issue around the country is the economy. host: the bloomberg insider also reports -- guest: can we do a better job, absolutely. and we must do a better job for one to remain a relevant party on the national scene, and particularly in the west. the latino vote, the hispanic vote as we like to call that in the west, it had shifted toward the republicans under president and former colorado gov. bill once actually won the hispanic vote here in 2002. it began to slip away. we had some issues with one of our congressman, congressman tom tancredo pushed away some

we create. john deere or caterpillar probably cannot get started today. we are continuing to penalize folks that want to get things off the ground. with the government need to do is make sure we give them proper regulation, clean water, clean air, ct the employees. -- safety of the employees. it is one of the key things. the person that might be building something in the roster they might turn into the next john deere to put these people to work making 30, 40, 50 an hour. one of the things that is great after visiting people here is the training facilities they have here, the labor folks know well that when they get that job and the people that actually hire them, they know the heart -- the quality will be there. this is where we have to get the skills sets to our community colleges. get these folks working together to where they are tied in with the businesses. one of the shortages we have is engineers. across the board. getting everybody working together for the common good would be big plus. >> the next question goes to, schilling first. >> a recent campaign at, congressman i learn
population and retired veteran population as well. john mccain carried that very narrowly. it was practically a 50-50 with obama. there's no way it's going to be that close this time. but i want to see what presented president obama gets in virginia beach. if the bows out of the water, that tells me something. if it's a close race, that tells me something. just a few examples. host: washington, d.c., on our independent line. caller: i am interested to know where you think independent voters are going to go in this election. i don't mean just in terms of republican or democrat. how are the third party candidates going to affect the election? in particular, gary johnson? a lot of people tend to think he will take away votes from the republican nominee, but i think in new mexico and michigan he is taking votes away from obama. if you could give me some insight into what you think will happen there. guest: that is a good question because we tend to oversimplified about independent and third-party candidates. we need to remember first of all some people turn out to vote for them that would not mak
, in westchester, ohio. also joining them is condoleezza rice and senator john mccain. that is at 7:30 on c-span. the amount we have to create an environment that our small businesses can thrive. when we look at the uniqueness on the border different from the reform metered -- needed, we need comprehensive immigration reform. we have a work force problem because of our immigration system is broken. we cannot get workers to go back and forth. these problems create an impediment to commerce. we have to provide a workforce that can move back and forth easily, and now we cannot do that because of the impediments that are there by not having an effective immigration policy. that becomes an economic issue. >> some of the issues have to do with what was raised here with regard to be near the border, seasonal work that comes on, and being susceptible to a national trend when it comes to the economy. we need to do things desperately yuma. yuma, one thing we have to avoid is the sequestration that is looming at the end of the year that will hurt our military readiness. for an area yuma, it would be d
characters, such as senate majority leader harry reid, former senator john en sign, and former governor jim gibbons, as well as the state's competitive primary and general election presidential races in 2008, 2004, and -- in 2008 and 2004. what, if anything from your sources, have you heard regarding the crash with harry reid yesterday? guest: what we are hearing is that he's fine. he suffered minor rib injuries. he appeared to walk into the hospital on his own power. very scary thing. his motorcade apparently involved in a pileup, a six-car pileup on a very busy stretch of highway in las vegas. i know it very well. i lived there for five years. but it does sound like he's fine. host: back to the phones. bradenton, florida, on our line for democrats. we've got joy. go ahead, joy. caller: good morning. thank you for taking my call. i am a senior citizen, and i live in a retirement community, and so i've done unofficial campaigning for our president. i think things are turning around, and i'm encouraging people, because we have a small computer lab in our main building to do some research on
the election before election day. john mccain won the election day vote but obama had already won the election in the early voting period. we have already had 1 million people voted north carolina. at this point, the democrats are doing better on the early voting, it appears. we don't have a vote count so we don't know exactly what the tally is. if you look at things -- we know things like number of active americans who have voted and that is up from the percentage who voted in 2008. percentage is greater this time at this juncture that was in 2008. the number of younger voters who tend to be more for obama than for running a, a greater percentage is up this time compared to 2008. those are all good signs for the obama campaign. but, what that will mean at the end, we don't know but the obama campaign had a good signal from that. host: we have a chart from an article in the "atlantic." it talks about absentee ballot request in north carolina. host: the democrats made a gain of about 9000. in your observations, do you see more democrats look again for absentee ballots in 2012 over 2008? might t
about north carolina john mccain lost any state by a closer margin than he did in north carolina. how have things changed for republicans and for the republican candidate between 2008 and 2012? guest: i think there is a significant difference in our ground game between 2008 and 2012 f. you remember in 2008 the republicans were looking back to 2004 when we carried the state for bush by the largest margin in the country. at that point folks at the national level didn't realize we could be a swing state or going to obama. that's different this time around. they started ground game here earlier than ever before in history. and we've put more staffers on the ground and more people making phone calls and that's been a strong part of our effort heading into this election. host: we want to take calls from anybody who is watching the show. the numbers are -- a lot of talk regarding the storm off the coast of the carolinas, sandy, what are the plans for the republican operatives for the ground game should that storm make land fall in the carolinas either monday or tuesday? guest: i'm not sure t
. and john, kfox night anger. -- night anchor. is going to start with the first question. >> heather wilson wrote the affordable care act is unconstitutional because of the individual mandate. if not thrown out by the supreme court, it should be repealed and replaced. martin heinrich voted for the bill. what should the replacement be? if it is to be kept, what changes should be made? >> i think it is important to understand why it should be repealed and replaced. it was a mistake. it is already costing jobs in the state of new mexico. it is not just jobs. it takes $700 billion out of medicare. there is only one candidate for the united states senate tonight who has voted to cut medicare. i also believe that it increases the cost of health care. we are seeing that already come close to $3,000 increase in health insurance premiums. it is going to cause our rural hospitals to close. i worked on the health care improvement act. i do not mind if my kids are on my insurance. i want them out of my refrigerator, but i do not mind if they are on my insurance. i think people should be able to buy ins

no poll has shown it as close as he says, then you would see mitt romney here. as john mccain was four years ago spending the money that they spent. this is a close race in the sense that all states will be close and this will be a very divided electorate, but pennsylvania remains firmly in the president's call amanda will be delivered by the strong ground game have been building under the leadership of our outstanding democratic chairman and our great executive director. we know how to win elections in pennsylvania on the ground. we are a bottom up party. we understand how to pull it off and we will. iran host: table discussion on -- host: roundtable discussions, pennsylvania politics. josh shapiro is the chairman of the montgomery county board of commissioners, a democrat, and robert gleason, the chairman of the republican party inwe have a phone line set aside for those of you who live in the keystone state. the number is -- from erie, pa., good morning. caller: good morning. i have two concerns. if you years back, i had a friend who was disabled in a wheelchair and i pushed him to
